If there’s one thing I don’t do with my makeup, I don’t depot them. I know it’s quite popular to do so especially for eyeshadow singles so you don’t have to contend with a drawer full of single shadows that you can never find which to use; or palettes, especially those that come in cardboard cases that can get grubby over time or large palettes so it’s easier to store and use.
The one and only time I did was out of necessity (NARS has HORRIBLE rubber packaging that melts and while I’m assured that the new ones won’t, I’ll say that it remains to be seen) and I shattered a NARS blush I liked (for the record, it was Desire) and at the time, I rehomed them into an Unii palette. I have toyed with the idea of getting another Unii palette from time to time but I never did because I don’t like it anymore. I find it bulky and I grew to dislike how it looked because it felt very kiddy to me. Here’s how it looks and no offence if it appeals to you, it just didn’t to me. Oh and it’s expensive. I toyed with the idea of a Z-Palette too but it was cardboard so nah, not for me no matter how sturdy it claims to be 😛
Anyway, I stopped by the Make Up For Ever Pro Boutique on the long weekend to pick up an eyeshadow and my eye fell on their empty palettes. A lightbulb came on and I picked up one to fill up with the only 2 Urban Decay palettes I own. Yes my friends, I was going to depot my palettes! 😀
